Hi Melissa,
Just dropping a word to say I enjoyed you poem very much. The rhythm caused by the repetition of day by day were only enhanced by the structure of those lines in the first stanza. I related to this poem because the line you included was “And for all this, nature is never spent” and this out of the whole poem was the line that stood out for me as well, though it was not the one I used. There is a hopefulness to this poem but a crushing disappointment as it cannot be seen by those who pass over the beauty.
